Peter Hook & The Light
Albert Hall, Manchester.
This event is for over 14s only - No refunds will be issued for under 14s.
Having toured the albums from Hooky's previous bands for almost eight years now, Peter Hook & The Light have now arrived at the next chapter in their journey as they reach the late Eighties and early Nineties albums of New Order, "Technique" and "Republic" which they will perform live at this show, PLUS there'll be an opening set of Joy Division material!
'Technique', New Order's fifth studio album chronicles the impact of acid house on the band, marking the clearest statement of the rock and dance influences that began to shape their output. It became New Order's first album to go to number one in the UK and was also hugely successful in the US.
Notoriously recorded in Ibiza in '88 the album is regarded as capturing the sound of that summer and a heady period for the band both on the island and in Manchester. Famously they didn't actually do much work there. Factory label boss Tony Wilson called the jaunt "The most expensive fucking holiday you've ever been on!"
